The Paris Opera Competition is dedicated to discovering fresh talent and introducing opera to a wider public. Every two years, the association organizes an international competition in search of the most beautiful operatic voices. From this global pool, six young prodigies are invited to Paris. After a week of intensive preparation with a stage director, an orchestral conductor, and vocal coach, a jury votes to award several prizes, including one awarded by the public at the finale.
The jury is comprised of the most prestigious Operas in the world : New York’s Metropolitan Opera House, Moscow’s Bolshoi, London’s Royal Opera House, the Dutch National Opera, and the Operas of Munich, Berlin, Lausanne, and Chicago.
